In the International Economic Law (IEL) Practicum, students work in small project teams, under the supervision of Professors and a Teaching Assistant, on specific legal questions related to international economic law (WTO law, regional trade agreements, BITs, investor-state arbitration, international finance or tax etc.) coming from real “clients”, such as international organizations, governments or NGOs. At the end of the semester, the project teams submit written legal memos and orally present their projects in class in the presence of the “client” and other invited guests.
The practicum has proven extremely successful, with student project teams directly impacting the regulatory environment in a number of international legislative contexts.
